The Salt Fields of Jingzaijiao
Very curious. If you’ve never seen a salt field, feel free to spend half a day visiting it.
The Jingzaijiao Salt Fields are over 200 years old and were built on top of a desert. You will see an extensive plain covered in white and with mountains of salt dotted by the expanse.
Of course, you can take your salt package from the Jingzaijiao Salt Fields. You will tell us if this salt has something to envy to the famous Himalayan salt. The Fo Guang Shan Buddha Memorial Center
